I finished this up last night as I waited for my husband to come from rescuing one of his customers who had to land in a field in Tennessee because of a blocked fuel line. Ah, the life of an “aviation widow”. The stories are a little more interesting than those of a “golf widow”, which my mom is.
Anywho, here is the finished project, which is now hanging in my dining room. I used a whole lot of different techniques in this – embroidery, paper piecing, machine quilting, hand quilting, etc. And it’s probably the best machine binding I’ve ever done. Apparently the trick is to go slow. Go fig – one of the things I’m no good at!
Yes, I did pair an inspirational quote from Dale Carnegie with a snarky one from Liz Lemon, Tina Fey’s character on 30 Rock. That’s how I roll.
Also, here is a very good recipe for Lemon Bliss Cake.
